  1. In Latest Tweet,Trump Reaffirms Plan to Use DACA Extension as Blackmail to Advance Whites-Only Immigration Agenda. Roger Algase

    Just in case anyone thought that Trump, despite reports of his alleged "Soft Spot" for the almost 800,000 DACA recipients whose legal status he announced 3 months ago that he would terminate in March, 2018, the president made clear in his latest tweet that he plans to use the DREAMERS to blackmail the Democrats into agreeing to the latest steps toward imposing his whites-only immigration agenda on America.

    Specifically, Trump tweeted as follows, according to POLITICO (December 29):

    "The Democrats have been told, and fully understand, that there can be be no DACA without the desperately needed WALL at the Southern Border and an END to the horrible Chain Migration & ridiculous Lottery System of Immigration, etc. We must protect our Country at all cost!"

    What does Trump mean by protecting "our Country" in this tweet? Since there is absolutely no evidence whatsoever that the tens of millions of legal immigrants who have come to the United States through family sponsorship or that the more than a million legal immigrants who have come to the US through the Visa Lottery in the past decades have presented any danger to this country as a group, the only "threat" that the president could conceivably have in mind is the demographic factor that immigration is helping to make America more diverse and reduce white dominance in our society.

    It is by now so clear as to have almost become a cliche that the only real purpose of Trump's border Wall is to become a symbol of contempt and humiliation against Latino, and by extension, all non-white immigrants; and that family immigration (derisively and falsely called "Chain Migration" by the Alt-Right and Trump's other white supremacist supporters), and the Visa Lottery are objectionable, in Trump's view, only because they have been popular with immigrants from non-European areas of the world such as Asia, Africa and Latin America.

    2018 may not turn out to be an easy year for DACA recipients, or for immigrants who try to come to the US legally from non-white parts of the world. But it may be a very good year for white nationalist immigration opponents as Trump continues to advance his Europeans-only immigration agenda.
